Khady's Group's story

The Banc Villageois that hosts this group was formed 02/08/2008. Said group is composed of six women from the same village who are united by good social relations and who are active merchants. The group is on its tenth loan cycle.

Khady is a 45 year old widow and mother of three girls aged 35, 32, and 30, and one boy aged 21 years. She is the representative of the group. Khady is active in the trade of fabrics and art objects. With her new loan of 400,000 XOF, she plans to purchase rolls of fabric, bracelets, tea and sugar that she will retail at her shop on Joal road. Khady benefits from good experience in her field. The income she earns will allow her to pay for the family's daily needs and to increase her savings at the Banc Villageois.

In this group: Khady, Ndèye Tening, Aida, Aissatou, Boudy, Elisabeth C
